Art of the Holocaust / by Janet Blatter and Sybil Milton


  • Antisemitism was at the foundation of the Holocaust. Antisemitism, the hatred of or prejudice against Jews, was a basic tenet of Nazi ideology. This prejudice was also widespread throughout Europe. (Holocaust Encyclopedia).
  • Nazi Germany’s persecution of Jews evolved and became increasingly more radical between 1933 and 1945. This radicalization culminated in the mass murder of six million Jews.. (Holocaust Encyclopedia).
  • During World War II, Nazi Germany and its allies and collaborators killed nearly two out of every three European Jews using deadly living conditions, brutal mistreatment, mass shootings and gassings, and specially designed killing centers. (Holocaust Encyclopedia).
  • Also known as "the Shoah," a Hebrew term meanng "catastrophe," the Holocaust has left an unfading mark on  history. Despite its harrowing atrocities, it has also produced a legacy of resilience, evident in the enduring artistic, musical, and poetic expressions that bear witness to the unquenchable and creative human spirit.
